Not clear what's on the stick; I assume it's DVD1 (or CD1). (I mean if
you're trying to use apt-cdrom with the stick and the machine has no
internet connection and you installed from the stick this is my
assumption. Others seem to have assumed other things. As I have a very
low assumption batting average lately I hesitate slightly to join the
(copied from a post by UK Brian--I think there's only one over there)
First adjust sources.list to only have
deb [ trusted=yes ] file:/media/DVD-1/ stretch main
("trusted" avoids warnings about unauthenticated packages--you trust
the iso on the stick, we assume.)
Make the DVD-1 directory:
and insert the USB stick. Obtain the device name from dmesg or lsblk.
Then (for example)
mount /dev/sdg1 /media/DVD-1/
apt update; apt install connman
It occurs to me I have no idea whether connman is on CD1 (or DVD1, or
whatever's on the stick). But if you've asked the right question this
may be the correct answer. Bonne chance.
